Hi everyone, I’m an internal recruiter with 6 YOE, and a degree in Marketing. I’m wondering if anyone here changed career trajectory after being a recruiter, and where did you end up. I’m trying to figure out my future. I love being a recruiter but I hope to evolve professionally and financially and not sure what type of paths I can go from here.

Where do you want to go professionally and financially? Recruiting can lead to roles north of 200k internally and there are million dollar billers on the agency side. You can lead recruiting operations or strategy for a big org.

If you're interested in getting out of recruiting/HR completely you may want to consider Digital Production roles within agencies. You may have to take a step back initially but once you're grounded and learn the world you could see significant growth! Or, if you're wanting to stay in the HR realm start to position yourself as an employment culture and employer branding expert.

That’s very interesting! I do create content somewhat and I think this would be something fun to get into. Any idea of agencies I should keep an eye for that?

Recruiting marketing! Could be great niche for you, lots of room to grow and talent market is booming so this is too.

In fact, I have. I do a bit of recruitment marketing for my current employer, and I love it. It’s definitely an area I have interest moving to. But I’m finding a hard time getting the experience necessary to make the switch fully and without getting a pay cut. But yes, I’m considering.

Start learning other elements of HR and you can move towards management. An industry shift could allow that - non-profits or smaller companies need generalists where you can take on a lot more and grow quickly. Once you're a good manager, you've got lots of options for growth. If you love recruiting, you can earn a lot - where are you now? You can easily make 130+ as a recruiter or senior/executive recruiter, 160+ as a lead or manager. And if you get into FAANG, you can be at 200-300. So if you love the work, you've got options for growth.

I do love recruiting, and I’ve tried to get into tech but without the experience it’s been tough. When you say easily 130+ where do you mean? Any specific industries? Thanks for the tips!
